Cake and Lemon Eaters / VIKTOR PIVOVAROV and GED QUINN

23. 2. – 20. 7. 2014

The Russian painter Viktor Pivovarov (1937) and the British artist Ged Quinn (1963) are presented together in a show exhibiting a compact collection that encompasses a compelling range of their work, with an emphasis on still lifes.

What links them thematically is their profound relationship with the history of European painting. They both plot a path from the age-old certainties of canonised meanings to a modern-day floating mosaic of shifted narrative with conjectural interpretations. Their paintings are a dialogue with inherited tradition, a reinterpretation of the visions of historical paintings, an exploration of ideas sailing through time, frequently alleviated by humorous overstatement.
